Dr. Schneider's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schneider "Thermi San Diego Plastic Surgery is dedicated to the aesthetic enhancement and wellness of our patients. Dr. Gerry Schneider is a plastic and reconstructive Surgeon with over 35 years of experience. His education and training are essential parts of becoming a plastic surgeon but as all good plastic surgeons do, Dr Schneider continues training in the most modern techniques in cosmetic plastic surgery. With the evolving perspective that this provides him and because of the extensive training he received in conjunction with some of he most innovative plastic surgeons of his generation, he has a broad base of knowledge and insight into what up to date tools are most applicable in planning and fulfilling his patient's cosmetic surgery goals. Dr Gerry Schneider has dedicated his medical career to helping both women and men in achieving natural-looking results using the latest non-invasive and safest techniques available. His recent adoption of radio frequency treatments makes true non-invasive cosmetic surgery closer than ever to being a reality Dr. Schneider is highly experienced. It's why he was recruited to and subsequently spent nearly 20 years at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla as a Plastic Surgeon. In addition to his aesthetic and cosmetic surgery practice, he specialized in reconstructive surgery of the face, breast and body, reconstructing surgical defects caused by the treatment of various forms of cancer and the facial and limb deficits it causes. Dr Gerry Schneider is also a retired Navy Surgeon at the rank of Captain and is double board certified in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.. Dr. Schneider offers a variety of both surgical and non-invasive treatments that include the recently in FDA approved ThermiSmooth, ThermiTight, ThermiVa, ThermiRase, ThermiDry, Traditional Liposuction, ThermiLipo (also known as ThermiLipoplasty), and Liposuction with Fat Transfers to the fat grafting to the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lifts), breasts, face and hands. As testament to his surgical aptitude and extensive knowledge of the reconstructive and aesthetic fields, he yearly participated as a faculty member and trainer in reconstruction for the famous Hubert Greenway, MD (the world's leading expert in the field of skin cancer surgery), Scripps Clinic Annual Dermatologic and Moh's Surgery Conference in La Jolla, both as a speaker and trainer. Dr Schneider volunteers his surgical skills and talents to serve the surgical needs in areas desperate for plastic and reconstructive surgery in the South Pacific. These annual trips to Fiji and Solomon Islands, sponsored by his favorite charity, Loloma Foundation of Point Loma are a labor of love. He focuses on cleft lip and palate repair in children, tumor removal for all ages, and reconstructive surgery to female burn suffers who are the victims of domestic violence as well as a variety of other procedures previously unavailable to patients in the Northeast sector of the Fiji Islands chain."
